After more than a year-long hiatus, Dining + Design — a program that allows Atlantans to dine at some of the city’s greatest restaurants while learning about how they were designed — is returning, with a program in February at Ponce City Market.
The chef’s kitchen qualifies as sleek, like all pictured bathrooms. And there’s no shortage of outdoor leisure options, highlighted by an immense rooftop terrace stubbed for a wet bar with "stunning views" that strangely aren’t pictured.
Industrious has expanded operations to the seventh floor of Ponce City Market just a year after opening a 30,000-square-foot facility on the eighth floor. With perks like fresh-made pastries and bagels, coffee from Blue Donkey, and fancy events, it’s amazing anyone can even get work done.
Perks include kitchen cabinetry literally to the ceiling. Other highlights, beyond roomy floorplans: the cozy and covered back decks, marble countertops (in some instances), and spaces for wine coolers.
Murder Kroger is meeting a slow and agonizingly protracted demise. A ceremony was held yesterday as a front-end loader tore through the front canopy of the building, marking the official kickoff of demolition.
Multiple firms are sharking Underground Atlanta with hopes of stepping in if the property’s sale to WRS doesn’t materialize, the AJC reports. A longstanding deadline to make the WRS deal happen (or not) looms in January.
The property stands about a block from Boulevard, joining a groundswell of renovations and new construction up the hill from Historic Fourth Ward Park and Ponce City Market. Allergies to neighboring parking lots could be an issue.
Vacant and problematic Old Fourth Ward properties were bulldozed in March, clearing the way for a $55-million venture called 525 North, but the site has been strangely fallow since. Why? Money, that’s why.
It wasn’t long ago the buildings that house Ponce City and Krog Street markets were carcasses. But if recent musings in Atlanta media are any indication, there’s a growing sentiment that such inwardly focused hives of activity are detracting from a more vibrant overall city.
It’s hard to argue that Ponce City Market has not been a transformational development on the Beltline. Now, the 2.1 million-square-foot adaptive-reuse project is receiving plenty of attention. From home and abroad.
Architects gathered in Savannah this weekend to recognize some of the region’s best architecture, with Atlanta firms being recognized in three of the four professional categories. Winners included a synagogue, a courthouse, and offices at PCM.
Officials say Ponce City Market’s Skyline Park — the colorful portion of The Roof with vintage games, concessions, and booze — is expected to open this Friday, pending final inspections. Expect to fork over between $1 and $10 to play.
The Beltline has finished The Plaza at North Avenue, a public-private team effort with developer Jamestown Properties and the first manicured public gathering place adjacent to the trail. Also new: stairs and an elevator!
Ponce City Market is kind of a big deal. And Jamestown, the firm behind the transformation, had quite the task to convert the space into the adaptive-reuse sensation it is today. In today's Q&A we hear from Michael Phillips, Jamestown President.
Beyond the giant public patio, expect a new weekly venture called Ponce City Farmers Market, featuring vendors such as Farm Burger, King of Pops, Turnrow Bath Body & Home, and others. Another awesome component: glorious shade.
S9, the design team behind Ponce City Market and the recently unveiled Murder Kroger redevelopment, is a New York City-based firm built on an affinity for Atlanta. Much of the love stems from John Clifford, a Georgia Tech engineering grad.
The 1.7-acre "Skyline Park" includes miniature golf, food and drink options, a dunking booth, steeplechase game, giant slide, one of those test-of-strength-hammer-swinging things, and something called the Heege. It's next-level stuff.
